[C](Chasin’ a [G]Rainbow till the [D7]day that I [G]d-[C]i-[G]e)[D7] [G]
Rain starts to fall and the [D7]sun fades away
[C]Memories start calling [G]another new day
It’s hard to keep tryin’ [D7]to reach for a star
With [C]no one beside me but my old [G]guitar
But I [C]gotta [D7]keep movin’ I [C]know how you tried
Chasin’ a [G]Rainbow ’till the [D7]day that I [G]die
Just thinkin’ over the [D7]years of my life
My [C]many proud moments my [G]struggles and strife
The days of good fortune when a [D7]good gal was mine
[C]How foolish of me to have [G]left her behind

Repeat #2
My mind keeps on wanderin’ over [D7]things in my past
The [C]money I made but [G]couldn’t make last
The vows that I’ve broken the [D7]lies that I told
[C]Mistakes that I’ve made in my [G]quest for life’s gold
Repeat #2
How often I think of the [D7]things I have missed
All the [C]girls that I knew that I [G]never kissed
All the dares that were offered and [D7]never did try
Lost [C]many good memories [G]how foolish was I
Repeat #2
Of prairies and houses I’ve [D7]left them behind
I [C]had for my wish the [G]best life of mine
From old California to the [D7]cold eastern sea
Then [C]back through the southlands to [G]old Tennessee
But I [C]gotta [D7]keep movin’ I [C]know how you tried
Chasin’ a [G]Rainbow ’till the [D7]day that I [G]die [C] [G] [D7] [G][/chordpress]

Through it all, his musically talented mother provided the emotional support he needed to pursue his dream of becoming a famous entertainer like his idol, the country star, Jimmie Rodgers.As a performer of traditional country music, Snow won numerous awards and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
